Trump: ‘Very Hard for Me to Imagine Anything Happened’ Between Kavanaugh and Ford

President Trump criticized Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh once again on Wednesday, telling reporters outside the White House that it’s “very hard for me to imagine anything happened” between the pair. If Ford does make a “credible” showing in front of the Senate, he said, according to CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller, “that’ll be very interesting.” But he also expressed his doubt and frustration toward the senators debating Kavanaugh’s nomination: “Really, they’re hurting somebody’s life,” he said, according to the New York Times. “I think it’s a very unfair thing what’s going on.”

Trump also announced he would like to meet with Ford, the California professor who has accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape in 1982. “I really want to see her. I really would want to see what she has to say,” Trump said, according to McClatchy News reporter Anita Kumar. “If she shows up, that would be wonderful; if she doesn’t show up, that would be unfortunate.” He then pivoted to attack Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), noting that “what I don’t like” was that Feinstein had Ford’s letter since July. “Why didn’t Sen Feinstein bring this up in her meeting with Judge Kavanaugh,” he continued, according to another tweet from Knoller. “That doesn’t look very good.”
